UK distributorship for Nanogel panels

Xtralite Ltd, the UK's roof glazing specialist, with a solid reputation for well-designed, high quality products backed by excellent service has been appointed as distributor in the UK for Nanogel® filled multiwall polycarbonate panels for commercial glazing systems.

Nanogel translucent aerogel is Cabot Corporation's innovative daylighting material that combines high light transmission with energy efficiency. Nanogel filled polycarbonate multi-wall sheet will allow architects substantially greater design freedom, allowing a wider scope to maximize natural light to 'museum light' quality, and at the same time meet the increasingly lower U-values required by building insulation regulations.

Aerogel materials are the best insulating and lightest solid materials in the world. Nanogel translucent aerogel is the world's most advanced, lightweight thermal insulation material that can double the insulation and maintain light transmission values when used as filler within fiberglass, polycarbonate, or glass wall panels and/or skylights. Nanogel aerogel is also sound absorbent, and will not promote the growth of mold and mildew because the material is water resistant.

Specifically designed for the daylighting market, Nanogel is now being used in commercial applications globally, allowing architects to maximise the advantages of natural light in building design, while meeting the lower U-values demanded by progressively tougher building insulation codes.

The feather-light Nanogel is 97% air and is manufactured through a patented surface modification and fine-particle technology developed by Cabot. Poured into translucent glazing panels and packed to prevent settling, the material has a density of 60-80kg/m3. Depending on panel thickness, Nanogel can deliver light transmission up to 80%/cm and an U Value of 0.7 (W/m².K) at 25 mm thickness. Moreover, it is also an effective sound insulator, providing up to 50% acoustic reduction at lower frequencies. These benefits provide architects with the possibility for new design solutions where both maximum natural daylight levels and energy efficiency, as well as user comfort, are required.

(AGC) of Japan has solved problems in lowering the defect-free rate for the production of fifth- and sixth-generation (5G, 6G) glass substrates, and is expected to tap the market with products with higher price competitiveness in 2006 to grab more market share in the 6G substrate businessIn addition, Wang added, the aggressive capacity added by both Corning of the U.S., the world's No. 1 substrate supplier, and AGC, the No. 2, will lead to price drops for glass substrates and will especially benefit TV panel makers such as AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. (CMO) in TaiwanCurrently, Wang pointed out, a 6G substrate is priced at about 27,000 to 30,000 Japanese yen, about 1,000 to 2,000 yen lower than in the third quarter of 2005.
